I commute approximately two hours a day, round trip, every business day. According to the Telework Calculator at WalletHub, this commute costs me $6,000 a year. They also tell me that I could me making up to $11,000 a year for work I could do at home if I was applying those two hours a day to telecommuting (working from home). That means that I would have approximately $17,000 more in my spending potential (we all know I’m not going to save it) if I stopped commuting to work and instead worked from home.
Hmmmm….. Not a bad idea. I wonder if my bosses would go for it?
How much is your commute costing you?
